Luxemotor barge “Leven in Strijd“

download spec sheet (PDF)

The Leven in Strijd is a large barge that is ideal for  use as a catering barge or for conversion to a large floating/cruising home, she would fit into all the popular Continental canals including the Canal du midi and the Canal du Nivernais.

Recently (Sept 2018) the Leven has was drydocked, the hull has had some overplating and has been repainted up to deck level, there is a new survey report. She does need some attention to the wooden skylights, wheelhouse and paintwork therefore the asking price is negotiable, reflecting the amount of work required to bring her back to be a barge of quality. This is a barge with great potential for someone that is happy to do some conversion work and painting.

I list below some of the great features of this barge:

  • 28.96 metres x 4.53m - a very spacious barge
  • Recent drydocking and survey report
  • Large open saloon with a great potential for conversion as required Proffessional Galley - this barge has been used as a Restaurant in the past and canstill be put to this use if wished
  • Large Skippers/owners cabin (totally original and separate)
  • Second entrance forward - this would allow the vessel to be split up ito two separate appartments
  • 4 toilets (one with a shower)
  • Large Deck areas with easy access and railings Fold down wheelhouse reduces to 2.4m (8'-0'') air draft
  • Dinghy in davits
  • Good Volvo Diesel engine
